To the Editor:

Recently there has been a lot of controversy surrounding remarks made by Congressman Braley. As someone who has lived in Iowa my entire life, I know Bruce Braley has been a friend to the Iowa Farmer.
Congressman Braley has been around farms his entire life. He grew up in rural Iowa working farm jobs such as detasseling corn, baling hay and working at a grain elevator. When he was elected to Congress, Braley became an invaluable advocate for Iowa farmers by fighting for 3 years to pass a farm bill and to provide tax credits to family farms.
The special interests attacking Braley as being unsympathetic to the farming community are knowingly misleading voters. Congressman Braley has been an advocate and ally of the farming community his entire life and will continue to be in the US Senate.
